If you own a Drawbar Clone Keyboard, MIDI Controller or MIDI keyboard and you want the best drawbar clone sound, you have found it.
The HX-3 Organ Module has a myriad of different advanced features. These advanced features allow you can create just about any nuance to get the tonewheel sound that you're seeking.
If you really want to get deep into the heart of the sound, use the free Windows based Remote Software to even adjust details like the tapers of the drawbars.
The HX3 is a tonewheel organ in a small box! Controlled completely via MIDI, selectable CC-Sets for NI B4, Hammond, Hamichord and other. 30 presets (to be stored locally), many "secret" HX3 parameters tweakable by menu with incremental encoder. And, of course, the legendary HX3 sound.
Also available as a kit for installation in "dead" Hammond XB-2 and as bare boards for installation in other organs/instruments by skilled technician.

The DBc Drawbar Controller is the perfect accompaniment to HX3 Organ Module.
If you have played a vintage tonewheel organ, you know how much more expressive you can be when playing one.
Connecting the DBc to the HX3 Organ Module lets you have that freedom. All without mapping anything. Just plug it into to the HX3 Organ Module via MIDI and you're ready to go.
Button Ergonomics: All of the buttons on the HX3 Drawbar Controller are big enough for your fingers, unlike other products with tiny buttons, that are hard to see, let alone press.

Maybe you have an older digital clone Drawbar Organ that won't let you control the HX3 Organ Module.
This is just one idea that allows you to have the HX3 sound and Drawbar Organ experience with the ability and ease of connecting, via MIDI.
Plus, you have everything you need to connect to just about every audio configuration via 1/4in outputs and even a standard 11pin connector to plug right into most of the new 11pin rotary speaker cabinets or interface kits.
Button Ergonomics: All of the buttons on the HX3 Drawbar Expander are big enough for your fingers. They are all grouped together correctly and have blue LED's to indicate when a feature is active, which is an important visual cue when performing.
